Yeah Efrain Escudero is someone to watch for sure. Has he dropped muscle mass since TuF? Not that its a bad thing. Does anyone else think that slam rocked Miller. I need to rewatch I guess but that was a hard ass slam and I don't know if Miller was slowing down to be more cautious or if Efrain just went on the offensive at the right time...not that it matters I guess since guys don't really work "the slam" but I love them.

EE wasn't going to be able to smother Cole Miller and he sure didn't need to.

A groan of tedium escapes me...

We'll see a lot more of him, not least because Buffer seems to love yelling his name.

Escudero had did pretty well against Miller, had a very nice slam but Miller was much more active. Escudero just caught him..

Who the hell is Rashard?...

Also yes Efrain does have more than alittle promise. I was excited to see a ground war between him and Miller though. I think Miller could have probably subbed him but who knows.

Top 7 Favorite Fighters at the moment

1. Forrest Griffin
2. Clay Guida
3. Shane Carwin
4. Jon Fitch
5. Chuck Liddell
6. Wanderlei Silva
7. Chris Leben

I agree, he's looking great.


BUT, is he a better wrestler with ever improving stand-up than Sean Sherk, Tyson Griffin, Frankie Edgar, Gray Maynard, etc... I guess we'll see, and I will say that at least these guys are knocking people out now, so I can't complain about boring fights...

Favorite Fighters:
HW - Randy "The Natural" Couture
LHW - Mauricio "Shogun" Rua
MW - Anderson "Spider" Silva
WW - "The Prodigy" BJ Penn
LW - "The Prodigy" BJ Penn

This is the second time now that I've seen someone refer to him as Rashard. I'm not sure if its supposed to be a mean joke or just a common misconception about his name .

And yes, I was very impressed by Efrain last night. Awesome slam. I think he got excited after the slam because he really turned it up after that. I'll have to watch again but yeah it looked like that took a bit out of Cole.

My point is that I'm now looking forward to him facing the calibre of fighter you've listed. I'm not saying he'll beat any of them but I'm very interested in seeing these fights happen.

Spelling mistake on my part... although I am curious, how is spelling his name Rashard a mean joke? I don't get it.
